Fork in the Road notices Booker and Dax manager Tristan Willey has left his post at the innovative bar behind Momofuku Ssäm Bar, and signs point to a new project on the horizon. “I cannot wait to tell you what is right around the corner,” he writes on Facebook. Willey, who poured drinks at last weekend’s Le Grand Fooding, has garnered accolades for his mix of classic and modernist techniques at the bar alongside proprietor David Arnold since February of 2012, when Booker and Dax opened.
